Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday ordered state agencies to deny
driver's licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants
who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration policy.
In an executive order, Brewer said she was reaffirming the intent of
current Arizona law denying taxpayer-funded public benefits and state
identification to illegal immigrants.
Young illegal immigrants around the nation on Wednesday began the
process of applying for federal work permits under the Obama
administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
